Binge-watching

The Clara Show

The Clara Show is a new BBC show that premiered on Aug. 23. It stars Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald. I’m not familiar with her other work, but she was on a show called Doctor Who which aired its last episode on Christmas Day 2013.
I feel so stupid because I never realized I was watching a spinoff of Doctor Who. It’s really quite sneaky of the BBC and Stephen Moffat not to announce this and just let us figure it out for ourselves. I guess it’s their way of weeding out the stupids like me. Moffat is also very smart because he’s finally giving us a female Doctor – something that’s been discussed heavily by fans of the old show – but without making such a fanfare over it. So when you realize that the regeneration from Matt Smith was just a decoy, it hits you more powerfully.
Coleman’s co-star is some actor named Peter Capaldi. I heard that he’s a big fan of Doctor Who. This is probably the reason why he accepted this supporting role – so he could still be connected in some way to the old show.
Hopefully there are no spelling errors in my post, because I was typing this through a haze of tears.

  1. Doctor Who has become “The Clara Show” a little bit, but I don’t think it will last long. I have a feeling Steven Moffat is setting this up as part of a bigger plan, which will involve Clara leaving The Doctor.

  2. Of course! I am expecting some big twist involving Clara, but I am still looking forward to the show. In my opinion this is one of the best series of NuWho because of the exploration of whether or not The Doctor is a good man, and whether or not he is a negative influence on Clara. It’s all very interesting, and very philosophical, which is what I love about the show!

    • Yeah, the finale will probably blow our minds. I like your approach, I should try that instead of being an emotional baby haha! I really like hearing what other Whovians think about this series, it’s always good to hear other perspectives about it.
